Houston is well known for its mural art! Here are my top three favorite locations for mural walls in the city. They are easily accessible and provide colorful inspiration for street art lovers of all ages.
I picked these three locations for a reason! Namely, you can just park in one spot and walk around to experience multiple photo opportunities. There is no need to waste time or gas…especially during the hot summer months in Houston. These locations are a basically a one-stop shop for mural walls.
Mural Location #1 – Houston Graffiti Building
Address – 1503 Chartres Street , Houston, TX 77003
There are various mural walls at the Houston Graffiti Building. Be sure to wear coordinating colors to really stand out in your photo. Parking is free, but be aware that this is a busy location. There are always families, photographers, and others taking photos here.
You can also catch artists in action at this location. It’s always interesting to talk to them and discover the inspiration behind their creations.
And a bonus – there are over 20 other murals at this same location. Be sure to walk around to all side of the building for other photo op areas. Also, take a look across the street where you will find additional murals. This is one of my favorite locations because you can get multiple mural photo opportunities all in one spot.
Mural Location #2 – Winter Street Studios
Address – 2207 Winter Street, Houston, TX 77007
This location is also known as Sawyer Yards. Once a furniture factory, Winter Street Studios is now full of art studios and beautiful murals. This is another location where you should park and walk the area to enjoy the street art. Take a look inside of the art studios too, There is so much talent in this one location.
Parking is free. Be aware that there are railroad tracks right next to this location, so drive safely. Parts of the parking lot is full of gravel so drive slowly, Most of the murals are located in the middle of the building complex. It is best to walk around and explore all of the colorful mural walls or you will miss out on some hidden gems.
Mural Location #3 – Downtown Houston – PANDR Design Co. Walls
Address: 1301 McKinney Street, Houston, TX 77010
There are 4 murals in this collection and all are located near each other in Downtown Houston. The artists are Phoebe Cornog and Roxy Prima of PANDR Design Co.
There is no parking area like the other two locations mentioned above. I found it best to use metered parking alongside the street. There is also paid underground parking on Caroline Street by The Shops at Houston Center. It’s a good place to do a bit of shopping before or after your photoshoot.
